Manager is not able to add a Successor for his Direct Report on A Succession Plan where he was previously a Successor (Doc ID 2222088.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 08, 2019

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise HCM Succession Planning - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Issue : Manager is trying to save the successor details for his direct report but the value is not getting saved in backend i.e., HR_SUCC_PLN_DTL record.

Steps to replicate :
1. Pick one active employee 'E1' as of today from Job, who should not have any future dated transaction.
2. Log in as his current manager, navigate to "Manage Succession plan" and add a successor (Lets say Successor Id = '123456' [He should be a manager of any department] )
3. Now transfer the employee to manager '123456' department as of current date.
4. Now log in as manager '123456' and check for the same employee 'E1' and try to add any successor and save the page.

The system does not allow the save to happen. Throws "You are not allowed to update your own data () error"

Note : References to Employee E1, Manager 123456 etc are Sample data used as examples.
